atlantic city 38 degrees right now in dover. as we go through the day today, we'll stay mostly dry, in the philadelphia area. 10:00 a.m., 42 degrees, by noon low 30s. later in the afternoon we'll see precip in south jersey and delaware. currently very light rain, maybe parts of cape may and beaches in suffolk county. dry cloud cover. the real area we're watching off the southeast coast. either not organized but later on tonight it will get a little better organized but will stay offshore from us but will be bringing us some moisture. so as we go through the day here, take a look, 9:00 in the morning, mostly dry. cape may and suffolk county, light rain. by 4:00 this afternoon, some light showers in south jersey and delaware but the rest of us really do stay dry just cold. look what happens by 8:00 to 10:00 tonight. we should start to see some snow forming in south jersey and delaware.
it's not going to be very heavy but i think it will be cold enough for snow. by 1:00, looks a little more impressive. we're going to be on the edge of this thing. for the philadelphia area, we're going to have to watch that. could be a close call but see snow falling. 4:00 in the morning, storm system starts to move away. south jersey and delaware, especially close to the shore, still seeing snow showers. by 6:00 this morning, if that's when your driving, best chance for snow to be lingering would be in the shore in new jersey and beaches in delaware. by 9:00 start to see a lot of this coming to an end. so snow totals not impressive. if we see anything at all accumulating, mostly on the grass, around an inch or so, that's mostly in new jersey and delaware but we can't rule out slick spots on the roads either, so be careful if you're driving tonight and early tomorrow morning in those areas. today mostly cloudy and cold feeling like winter. later tonight we'll see that rain change over to snow, mostly in new jersey and delaware. temperatures anywhere from 40 to 43 for the afternoon today but
then tonight we're going to drop back down to around freezing and that is why we still expect snow to be in the forecast tonight. coming up i'll show you that seven-day forecast. we'll take a closer look at the timing of that snow straight ahead. >> sheena, thank you. it's mother nature at its very best and you can watch it all unfold live. take a look, a baby eagle could be born at any second. it would be the second eagle born in washington, d.c., this week. the eagle mom and dad are nestled high in a tulip poplar tree at arboretum. the second baby has started to crack its shell. it can take hours or days to finish. yesterday mom and dad brought fish for their young one to eat. a live look, american eagle foundation runs this nest camera. last summer the same eagle parents, nicknamed mr. president and the first lady raised one eaglet. 5:51 right now. a tough day for the flyers as

last game. we could be playing our last game in a villanova jersey. the tension has just risen. >> we all want to get over that hump but it's not doing to be easy. we have a great opponent in iowa. so you know, i think if we are able to, the biggest relief would be to not answer the questions anymore. >> basketball for 40 minutes, if that's good enough for us to win, we'll accept that. if not, there's no failure in that. we'll do out with pride knowing that we went out our way. >> we've done this before. what's the worst outcome, we've lost. it didn't kill us. let's go have fun preparing for it and give it everything we've got and enjoy playing in the game. >> never have a problem having fun. they are loose. >> a nice moment with jay wright and iowa coach mccaffrey who was a philly guy and played at penn.
